Connerjack Oswalt Biography
Who is Connerjack Oswalt ?
An autistic teen who went missing from California three years ago has been found more than 740 miles away in Utah.
Connerjack Oswalt, 19, was reported missing by his family in Clearlake on September 28, 2019 when he was just 16 years old.
The Summit County Sheriff’s Office received reports of a man pushing a shopping cart in Park City sleeping outside Jeremy’s Store near Interstate 80.
Officers approached Oswalt, who was diagnosed with autism in 2014, outside the convenience store, but he didn’t tell them his name and they said he was cold and shivering.
After inviting Oswalt into his police car, officers were able to identify him when he agreed to scan his fingerprints.
Authorities continued to investigate and found his profile in the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children’s database.
Her mother, Suzanne, told CBS: ‘We searched all over California. We are grateful that he is safe and alive and that we have our son back. That is the most important thing for us.
Oswalt’s stepfather, Gerald Flint, added: “Honestly, I’m still dumbfounded by the situation.” We have had many false hopes in the last two and a half years.
Flint drove from Idaho Falls, where the family had moved since his disappearance, to Park City, where he positively identified Oswalt.
Commenting on the time Oswalt was reunited with his family, Sheriff Justin Martinez said, “There wasn’t a dry eye in the room.” They have met this guy they haven’t seen in three years when he was 16. He is now 19.
“As we have dealt with this individual, he has never been aggressive with law enforcement, but he has resisted law enforcement,” Martinez told FOX 13 News.
He added: “The deputies [were] dispatched early in the morning and he is the same individual we have been dealing with in recent weeks.
